    That was just last summer.
    It's a 2008 Mustang GT/CS.

    Here is my car as of about 2 hours ago:

    This, of course, happens when I'm about 3 months away from moving to a place where I would be garage keeping it again.

    it is only a ford...not like a chevy was damaged or anything...JK...


    that sucks, Do the doors open smoothly? If the roof pillars are bent or buckled, they will most likely stick. If they open smoothly, you may get lucky, and have it repaired instead of totaled... good luck with the insurance co.

    You can't fix this car, Spicoli!

    If you haven't done so already, call your insurance company. If it's an 08 it should have full coverage and typically they won't dock you for acts of nature.

    Ouch Ray!

    I'm dealing with some lesser related hassles from the same storm down here. Looks like my storage shed may croak any minute. :atoz:

    Dang! Sorry to see that. I have a 2009 GT/CS in Vista Blue. Since it's a special edition GT, I'd try to fix it if you can. Good luck, bro!

    EDIT: I have a friend who lives in Seattle, and she was sharing pics of the snow you guys are getting up there. Crazy!

    My cousin has an original 1968 GT/CS... I was going to buy it in 1989, and my own uncle "swooped" me on the deal, and gave it to my cousin as his first car
     
  10. Oh boy, that's gonna leave a mark!

    Well, other than the 1/4 - 1/2" of ice on the door, they do open smooth. from what I can tell, it's just the middle of the canopy that's collapsed, so it should be fixable. I'm taking it to a shop as soon as I get off of work to get in line for repairs.
    Yup, I have full coverage on it. Even if I wasn't making payments on it (almost done!), I'd keep full on it. But, I have a ridiculous high deductible, so I'm going to get estimates first, and go from there.
    Oh no :(
    Yeah, definitely going for the fix as much as I can. We'll just have to wait and see.

    I think it's rude, inconsiderate, and borderline racist that you infringed on that trees right to fall on the ground.

    glad to hear that...I am a serious gearhead, so I hate to see any nice vehicle destroyed
    good luck, and I do hope it is repairable
